a quick, older interview, recorded last season while Spree was on the road
in Los Angeles, but the questions are timeless. Between INSIDE HOOPS' Jeff
Lenchiner and the Knicks' Latrell Sprewell.
who were your favorite players when you were a kid?
Jordan... Jordan, Bird, Magic, Worthy... Dr.J... and from Milwaukee, you
probably don't remember this guy - Brian Winters. He was a shooter.
Jeff: Any specific
moves you tried to steal from people back then?
just Jordan - everyone wanted to do the hang-time thing, the up-and-under
(does the motion with his hands) and things like that.
Jeff: And how
much did you play as a kid, and how much did you dream about making it?
played a lot... I played a lot. I'm living out a childhood dream right
now, so it's fun.
you were young, at what point did you figure out that you were better than
the average ball-player?
think probably after my sophomore year of high school...
just started to grow, and some of the guys that were considered to be pretty
good, I could compete with those guys.
Jeff: So the
skills went up right around the time the growth went up... no growing pains...
Jeff: And since
this is for InsideHoops.com - the web, do you ever actually go on the internet?
the the time!
and what do you do?
usually on there playing Unreal Tournament.
